This pet is a great addition to a Nexus Whelpling Mana Surge team. His magic status allows you to absorb dragon based damage and either slow the enemy pet down with Eyeblast or to rip them apart by lowering their damage and increasing yours 25%. In addition you have Psychic Blast to finish things off. Usually I name this pet "Is" because Resistance Is Futile is my team.
Just over two hundred fights and still no rare :(
And the curse of little XP negates the ability to level other pets in the area, so its a definite irksome grind. That and the annoying trial of trying to figure out when the other pet in the area is going to spawn (I'm on Thrall and have camped from midnight to almost 3AM and still no Restless Shade) means that this area is my Achilles Heel. Thank god I have pretty ankles or this would be frustrating.
For some reason I love this pet, although I always feel like he is watching me. I am not paranoid. My psychiatrist says that he is not watching me, so I am sure he is not watching me. I mean how could he watch me, he's not real. Is he? But anyways, the best pet against flyers is the Nexus Whelpling in my opinion. But the next best pet against flyers is the Arcane Eye. His Drain Power ability is awesome if you combine that with Arcane Storm. Look out.
I don't know what's going on with leveling here. But I tried my Pandereren water spirit lvl 13 for about 5 fights without one level. And I did a lvl 10 dark whelpling close to leveling up and all it did was barely go to 11.
This is a decent pet vs flyers. Weak defense but can burn down alot of pets before you have to swap it. A staple of my "B" team.
Just managed to catch my first one - a rare nonetheless! - using 3 x Fluxfire Feline [uncommon, 2 x lvl 6 and a lvl 7]. Took me a couple of tries, but in the end managed to catch it by a hair (or, more precisely on the very last round before my third kitty perished). So happy!
Getting the other two eyes after this was a piece of cake (first two kittys were enough to catch both a poor and a common eye).
Very easy to find in Deadwind Pass near the entrance to the Kharazan instance. Spawn in front, back, top and sides of the building, as well as in the adjacent water channel. Easy to find via flight form or flying mount. They spawn 24 hours a day, but you may wish to hunt for them before and after hunting for Restless Shadelings in the Master's Cellar. If you don't find rares, check again later, and you may double or triple your luck! If these were tradeable, I'd make a killing!
Only found one in all the Deadwind area and it was an uncommon.
Their location is your one stop shopping place for pet leveling. After doing the trainer whom it is a gift to fast level a lvl one pet to 6 with Jack's first move, you can then go on to eyes. As said they single spawn so perfect for a lowbie to take a shot then switch. They always seem to be plentiful. I've found 2 rares, only come in one build. Bit mean ganging up three against one tho. :)
The one I tamed was a rare, but I find it difficult to level, as it loses health very quickly, even against flying oponents. I give it high rates for the looks however.
i love this pet ... I use with my Azure Whelping and the damage bonus he gets
from the arcane winds is freakin awesome . can one hit lvl 25 comon pets with ease and uncommon most the time to
Shadelings and eyes are single mobs. I have yet to see a rare shadeling, used a stone on mine. I got a rare eye but it took a lot and I was always the only one there.
These are useful for lvling pets if you're like me and enjoy the slow way. If you're just starting out, this is a good one to grab since they are lvl 16-18, easily gunned down by strong lower lvl pets, and fly solo so no pesky second or third to beat down. Eyeblast and Interrupting Gaze are a dead useful combo too. Also, my first Flawless unmarked battlestone dropped after fighting one, but that was two droprate modifications ago.
Easy to spot them near kara
It's not normal for almost all other pets but the Arcane Eyes and I think also the Restless Shadling both only come with 1 of their type rather than 2 other random pet types from the zone.
Started pet battling today and all of the Eyes I found were single mob fights...is that normal?
I am having the worst luck with this guy. I happened to fly down there just to battle the tainer and the Shadelings were up so I got a rare one of those and thought "Hey I never came here and caught an Arcane Eye, I'll nab one while I'm here"
Just got my rare on second try (first was uncommon). There are still three left so that makes five.
Slychd - It could simply be bad timing. This battle pet and the Restless Shadeling are on daily and/or timed spawns from what I can tell. I killed all the Arcane Eyes in Deadwind Pass roughly 30 minutes ago and none of them have respawned. I've also read that the Shadelings only come out somewhere between midnight and 9am EST, then despawn late morning.
EDIT: After posting this comment the Eyes started respawning again. So figure a 30-40 minute timer on respawns.
Flew to Kara to try to battle the last Master Pet Tamer. Found exactly one Arcane Eye, close to noon server time. Fortunately, it was rare. Now I only have to come back for the other pet and I'll be done with Deadwinds Pass. :)
